  1. [S124] A Memorial of John, Henry, and Richard Townsend & their descendants., page 194 - HANNAH, DAUGHTER OF MILL JOHN, Married Samson, son of Christopher Hawxhurst. Her fiither gave her a tract of land at Cedar Swamp, which he says in the deed he got from his father, who wished her to have it. This land her husband exchanged f'or a tract at Matinecock (now Buckram), where he probably had some before. He also bought mills at Glen Cove, and seems to have been a very active man, but probably not altogether prudent, as at his death some of his land had to be sold to pay his debts. Hannah survived him, but nothing more is known of her.-Issue, William, Joseph, Benjamin, Samson, and Daniel. We know of no descendants of Samson in the male line. Daniel moved away.
